Pretty button

Week Six

Sunday 5th February, our youngest's 31st birthday.
I say it every year, where do the years go.........

Monday we went to meet this little person.

Tuesday was a fun day we don't think!   

We went out to buy some milk.  It turned out to be a very expensive bottle of milk!  
We got to Lidl's carpark to find we had a flat tyre caused by a rogue nail in the road.  The spare tyre was locked in under the car, so we called the AA to put the spare on for us.  We all looked at the spare tyre and said that's not good for long motorway journeys, we have been doing a lot of those lately.  So off to our local tyre shop to have the puncture repaired, purchase a new tyre and have the tyres swapped round the car to replace the spare.  So what was a thirty minute trip to buy milk ended up as nearly two hours!  We're just thankful it didn't happen on the motorway.

Week Five

 First of all please say hello to our beautiful grand-daughter born to our eldest son Michael and lovely daughter-in-law Liz on 26th January

Her name is Abigail

She is wearing a little cardigan I knitted thirty-five years ago for her daddy.

The cardigan, is it classed as vintage yet........?

(last showing I promise)

The last of my pretty flowers  
The post about them is here

And re-potted the plants from here.  Think we have lost one plant on the left front of the basket, and the poinsettia isn't going to survive much longer, The was a rose as well but that is now in a pot in the garden.  You can read about this here
